Weighing in at 0.44 ounces, Viridian says the RFX11 “is one of the lightest reflex sights on the market.”

The new Viridian RFX11 has a three-MOA green dot, with the brightness automatically adjusted to the ambient brightness.


For the price of $189, purchasers of the RFX11 will receive a three-MOA Viridian open-emitter green dot, which boasts instant-on and auto-shutoff capabilities, along with more than 30,000 hours of run time with CR2032 battery at the medium brightness setting. As for the housing, a high-strength, thermomolded black polymer is employed. Additionally, this new sight uses the Shield RMSc footprint.

Since it does not have any buttons, the Viridian RFX11 has automatic brightness control, using an ambient light sensor to measure the current lighting conditions and make adjustments.

The maximum adjustment for elevation and windage for the RFX11 is 90 MOA. Adjustment is performed via screws located on top and the right side of the housing.

From Viridian: “Its tiny size puts it at home on any optics-cut concealed carry pistol or as a close-range offset sight on your rifle.”
